MILLHOG® Welding End Prep Tool Is Battery Powered for True Portability

HOLLISTON, MA--(Marketwired - Dec 18, 2013) - ESCO Tool has introduced a field-proven, right angle drive I.D. clamping pipe milling tool that is battery powered for performing welding end preps anywhere an air hose or electric cord is unavailable.

The Tube Weasel Battery MILLHOG® is a right angle drive I.D. clamping welding end prep tool that employs a wedge-style blade locking system and TiN coated cutter blades to perform clean, ready to weld, end preps without cutting oils. Now available with a rechargeable 18V Lithium Ion battery pack, this fully portable pipe milling tool is ideal for use anywhere air or electricity is unavailable.

Featuring three clamps which fully contact the mandrel and expand inside the tube, the Tube Weasel Battery MILLHOG® is suitable for milling tubing and pipe from 3/4" I.D. to 3" O.D. and only requires a 3" radial clearance for boiler tube panel repairs. The battery is rechargeable using 120/220V and can be easily retrofit with existing pneumatic versions of the tool.

The Tube Weasel Battery MILLHOG® is priced from $4,195.00 complete. Literature and pricing are available upon request.
